Anxiety Poem

By: Anonymous

dear anxiety hiding within,

you are a warm wool blanket on a sticky july summer night,

itchy and stretched over my entire body,

you are suffocating me.

i didn’t let you define who i was or how i felt

dear anxiety hiding within,

i am teaching myself how to swim.

i am battling you, fighting you off because if i don’t fight, i won’t win.

you are a horrid demon hiding in the dark corners of my mind,

turning me into a monster without a face.

you are taking me over.

i am good enough, strong enough, and you have no right to make me feel worthless.

i never want to see you again.

you are the past not the future.

i will no longer live with these tight chains wrapped around my mind.
